Cathedral? Mirror


I know! Another mirror.. But this one wasnt mine lol. My friend Kay over at Country Sunshine (Check her out, she's new!) found this mirror one day when we were yard saleing and asked me to paint it for her.. I wish I had taken a BEFORE pic! It was solid white when she got it.. Her style is country casual meets Shabby Chic.. She wanted this mirror to go beside the picture of her and her hubby on their wedding day, since it looks like a church window..

Basically I popped the back off the mirror, took the mirror out, and spray painted a light coat of flat black over the white.. Then I took a fine grit sandpaper and sanded down the areas I wanted to look distressed.. I sealed it with a spray Matte sealant then popped the mirror back in. I put the back on again and secured it with a little glue and viola! She loved it!!
